We will be serving as the Race Committee Boat for the evening's race.  We won't actually be sailing, but will place the course buoys and anchor ourselves. Then we will run the start sequence, and at the end record finish times.  This is a good way to get experience understating how races are set up and run, as well as a having some fun watching and learning how some boats do start strategies.  Dinner food and beverages provided for all your hard work.

  • Heavy-duty gloves (preferably leather) for line handling (fingertips cut off is OK).
  • Warm clothing head to foot (Note: The ambient temperature on the water is usually lower than on land).
  • Foul-weather gear

  • Whistle on a lanyard
  • Food and drink
  • Headlamp or flashlight
  • No bananas! No random whistling!
